Last week Spotify released Wrapped 2020, a summary of the most streamed artists, songs and albums of the year, by listeners, both locally and globally. Following on from Wrapped, Spotify is sharing additional data on the most streamed artists and songs on gaming consoles in South Africa.
With more people staying indoors this year, unsurprisingly, there has been an increase in the number of people streaming music from their home devices, especially gaming consoles. The latest Spotify data shows that between 1 January and 14 November 2020, there has been a global increase of 55% and a local increase of 125% in gamers streaming Spotify through their consoles while playing the latest and greatest of their all-time-favourite titles – whether that’s exploring new worlds, fighting crime, or spying on super villains.
- The most streamed artist on gaming consoles locally is Juice WRLD, followed by Travis Scott, XXXTENTACION, Drake and Pop Smoke.
- The most streamed song on gaming consoles in South Africa is ‘The Box’ by Roddy Ricch. ‘Blueberry Faygo’ by Lil Mosey and ‘ROCKSTAR’ by DaBaby featuring Roddy Ricch are the second and third most streamed songs with ‘THE SCOTTS’ by Kid Cudi, THE SCOTTS, Travis Scott and ‘Falling’ by Trevor Daniel completing the list of the top five most streamed songs on gaming consoles.
